When software developers write code, they often use tools called IDEs, integrated development environments, that provide contextual information needed to manage the complexity of modern software. What would such a workspace look like, if it were designed for journalism?

Rethinking Linear Leadership For Creativity And Innovation

Rethinking Linear Leadership For Creativity And Innovation | The Innovation Library | Scoop.it
If the solution and the destination are determined up front, it leaves little if any room for creativity and innovation…

We live and work in accountability-driven systems. And for that reason, visions and endpoints proliferate our institutions and organizations. Our destinations have often been determined before we ever begin. Not that being outcome-driven is negative…but very often, the path to get to those outcomes has already been mapped out with excruciating detail before ever beginning the journey.

What we fail to realize, is that authentic creativity and true innovation seldom, if ever, occur in a linear fashion.

Why Innovation Eats Strategy for Breakfast

Why Innovation Eats Strategy for Breakfast | The Innovation Library | Scoop.it
It's impossible to win solely by managing existing assets when your competitors are busy inventing new ones.

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, September 3, 1:35 AM

Love this, "To win in these challenging times, innovation has become your most powerful source of competitive advantage. Playing yesterday's game--even with brilliant strategy--is no match for the hurricane strength winds of creative disruption. Today, an entirely new set of skills and approaches are required to succeed. Simply put: innovation eats strategy for breakfast."

Man doesn't eat by disruption alone. Disruption is disrupting, so balance is always a good idea (not really mentioned in this post). Disruption has to COME FROM some place too. Even those who disrupt innovate on or in some space or meme.

Because the disruption feels from left field to some doesn't mean that is where the idea came from. Most disruptions were sitting on the ground staring up at whoever passed by. SEEING without the hypnotic drug of status quo thinking begins DISRUPTION. SEEING is the key then NOT rejecting the disruption, "Embracing the suck." to quote a movie I saw recently becomes critical because every muscle will cry to crawl back to the safety of the status quo.

Don't do that is our advice :). Do disrupt.

#toogood #true

Ken Cooper's curator insight, September 3, 11:15 AM

Actually, the Peter Drucker quote is, "Culture eats strategy for breakfast." Of course, innovation is essential. However, innovation is a team sport, and it flows from culture. The key is to establish the kind of culture that will produce a steady stream of innovation.

How millennials will save the world—one text at a time

How millennials will save the world—one text at a time | The Innovation Library | Scoop.it

This year my agency conducted an experiment: we hired eight interns, all Millennials, from around the world. To top off the experiment, we took on an impossible task and launched an immersive three-week sprint to submit for the Cannes Chimera Initiative, which promotes use of creativity to address social causes. The assignment this year was to come up with ideas that would inspire Millennials to become engaged in solving the global health crisis. The first part of the challenge was to present ideas to our senior leadership team at the agency. For two hours, my jaw dropped as idea after idea arrested my imagination and filled my heart with hope and protective pride.
This is not just an optimistic generation, this is an empowered generation of young people that believe it is more than their right to make a difference—it is their duty.

Want to Innovate? Become a "Now-ist"

Want to Innovate? Become a "Now-ist" | The Innovation Library | Scoop.it

“Remember before the internet?” asks Joi Ito. "Remember when people used to try to predict the future?”

 

In this engaging talk, the head of the MIT Media Lab skips the future predictions and instead shares a new approach to creating in the moment: building quickly and improving constantly, without waiting for permission or for proof that you have the right idea.

 

This kind of bottom-up innovation is seen in the most fascinating, futuristic projects emerging today, and it starts, he says, with being open and alert to what’s going on around you right now. Don’t be a futurist, he suggests: be a now-ist.
